Orkan Squall brand

Hello all, I am shopping for a carbon bike and this one from ebay caught my attention but the price seems too good to be true. Any help on this bike is really appreciated before I gamble. Thanks

It's on ebay for $599 and the brand is Orkan. I can not post the link yet but it's on eBay

I couldn't find it anywhere including eBay. Personally I wouldn't take my chances on an unknown bike.

Found this on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/ORKAN-Carbon-...ts=p_4%3AORKAN

Same bike? If so, it's considerably more $$$ than your ebay one.

Would suspect it's a low cost chinese frame made with questionable quality control. I suppose the groupset parts could be knock-offs but I wouldn't assume that. My experience with things like this is sometimes they work out and sometimes they don't. Ya pays your money and ya take your chances.

I'd be reluctant to buy from some place that would not allow a return if it turns out to be really bad.

Personally if I was on that kind of budget and looking for a carbon bike, I'd get something used with a name and reputation that was known.

Thanks guys, I found out that it is also a GMT brand bike. @Ogsarg, I also notice all the sellers has no return policy and I don't even wonder why.I'll just save some more.

Sometimes I do but most of the time I'm not happy with the results so I'll just forget about this Orkan brand since all the sellers of the brand hasno return policy which is Scary.
